    Is that his video? How many times has made the same points repeatedly? It was interesting the first time though.

    For a man so obsessed with movement, he sure seems to have trouble grasping the whole concept and mechanics behind actually moving his head.

    With each sentence that I read from this guy, I can actually feel my knowledge of the English language deteriorating.

    He is a very good striker but he is so one dimensional. He better wrap up his game because what has been exposed in the mendes fight it s something his opponents are going to try to exploit. Aldo, Mendes, Edgar, are all around fighters. He s just a striker. A very good one, but just a striker.

    This is just bullshit, the guy only got interested in movements after he injured himself, like many other people who've injured themselves before. When he talks about animals it's just hype, he didn't study shit and whenever someone asks him a question about studying animals movements he never answers anything meaningful.

    So, basically: always through a distraction before committing, we already know this.

    Tearing your ACL will do that. He got more interested in movement after that. This shocks you? It isn't just hype either. You can see Conor training and doing animal movement exercises a lot, gator crawls and gorilla crawls. He's talked about how efficiently they move and studies them then tries to replicate what they do in the gym. He also has a gorilla tattooed on his chest to represent SBGi and a tiger on his stomach. The tiger is related to economics but he said he wanted to own some of these exotic animals on major television networks before during interviews.

    McGregor calls himself an animal and means it. There is no hype and you don't know much about Conor if you think he's doing this just for the PR attention.

    Can't believe I watched that crAp. Made the same points that everyone sAys about Connor. At this point if you don't know what Connors main attacks are you must be under a rock.

    I'm more interested in why Connor was begging the ref to stand him up. Or why he was taken down so easily in the first and second rounds. Was he standing to tall? Over commited? Mendes just that skilled? If that's the vas is the skill discrepancy so big that even if he trains for mended is the skill gap to much? Did he do anything right?
